You can turn a CD Envelope into a coordinating card by following the instructions below.  It is easy and fun and gives you just another way to use these fun templates.  Remember that if you are going to print a sentiment on the inside of your card you should place your print on the upper half of the page and it should be UPSIDE DOWN.
CD Envelope Tutorial

  1. Print your CD envelope and card on cardstock and gather supplies.  (Recommended supplies: craft knife, cutting mat, metal edged ruler, small scissors, glue runner, bone folder)

Start with the card and fold on the fold guides in the middle of the page.  You do not need to fold anywhere else for the card, because the rest will be cut off.

3.  With the card folded in half, use the metal edged ruler and craft knife and cut along the bottom edge and the sides.  Cut about ¼” in from the printed edge.  This will make your card slightly smaller than the envelope so it will fit inside.

Now you have a finished card.

5. Next are the instructions on making the envelope.  Take the printed envelope and fold on all fold lines.  There should be a total of 4 folds.

Cut along the outside edges using scissors.

Fold the 2 side flaps in towards the middle and apply glue along the side edges of the back piece.

8. Push the back piece up to adhere the sides and the back together.  This will form your envelope.

9. You can now write inside your card and put a name on the front of the envelope and you are ready to share your fun card and envelope.  Enjoy!!
